The First Person With MS Scales Mount Everest Completing "Seven Summits" Quest

Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) June 18, 2009

On top of the world! That's where 52-year-old Lori Schneider stood for 10 exhilarating minutes. Right at that moment, she became the first person with Multiple Sclerosis to climb Mt. Everest and complete the Seven Summits -- climbing the tallest peaks on every continent. Lori is now one of only 25 women in history to complete the Seven Summits and one of only three women over 50 to do so.

Lori attributes her incredible success to a can-do attitude, phenomenal training regimen, and LivingFuel superfoods. She began her amazing adventure in 1993 by climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. During the next six years she climbed mountains in Africa, Asia, South America, Colorado, France and Switzerland. Just months after being diagnosed with MS in 1999, Lori climbed Aconcagua, the highest peak in South America.

Lori's biggest challenge was Mt. Everest -- the world's highest peak. Her climb began with 12 months of intense training. She began the actual ascent from Everest Base Camp on April 14, 2009, and after five weeks of acclimatizing to the high altitude and difficult climbing, she reached Camp Four at 26,000 feet (8,000 meters).

Summit Day began May 22 at 10:00 p.m. Lori and her team reached the 29,035 foot (8,850 meter) summit of Mount Everest after a grueling 10-and-a-half hour climb in negative four degree cold, 60 mph winds and virtual white-out conditions. She stood on top of the world for 10 minutes and then began her descent -- another dangerous six hours down out of the treacherous Death Zone, where 80% of Everest climbing accidents occur. Lori and her team arrived back safely at Everest Base Camp on May 25 ending the 51-day adventure. The entire experience was stunning and surreal.

"The next day it hit me how wonderful it had been to be on top of the world," says Lori Schneider, 52-year-old mountain climber and motivational speaker.

Lori learned long ago how important it is to supplement the climbing company's high carbohydrate diet with high quality nutrition. Lori's nutritionist and acupuncturist Dr. Julie Casper recommended Living Fuel's products while Lori was training for her most recent climb. Lori began drinking the LivingFuel super smoothies and noticed an overall improvement in her energy levels and general health.

"I like Living Fuel so much better. It gives me high quality nutrition. I won't use anything else. The ingredient list is phenomenal and it tastes great!" Lori continues.

"Lori is clearly an example of living life to its fullest. We congratulate her on all her physical and mental accomplishments," explains Living Fuel Founder and CEO K.C. Craichy. "Her incredible achievements will inspire countless others to overcome obstacles in their own lives."

About Lori Schneider
Schneider is a world class mountain climber and motivational speaker, helping people move beyond their fears and limitations. She is based in Bayfield, Wisconsin. Through her company, Empowerment Though Adventure, Lori offers adventure and climbing experiences for people with MS. For more information, visit http://www.empowermentthroughadventure.com.

Bring the "Lizard Philosophy" to Work - Enterprise Media Announces the Release of "Who Put A Lizard In My Lasagna?" Hosted by Sam Glenn

Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) June 19, 2009

Enterprise Media announced the release of its latest program with Sam Glenn. "Who Put A Lizard In My Lasagna" is a 22-minute training program. This program is designed to help employees learn how to bring their best attitude to every interaction they have with customers and coworkers.

Laughing While Learning

Everyone loves to laugh and wouldn't it be nice to enjoy learning while smiling. Enter, Sam Glenn in "Who Put the Lizard in My Lasagna?" Sam Glenn has a unique way of telling stories by using anecdotal situations that have occurred in his life. They are often very funny and may even conjure up memories from your own past.

In "Who Put a Lizard in My Lasagna?" Sam uses the concept of the lizard --- the idea of using the best of what you have to create the best of what you want. This mindset determines what experiences and rewards you will attract into your life. The "Lizard in My Lasagna" began when Sam's mother put a plastic lizard in a big pan of lasagna as a joke. Sam was feeling depressed after some business setbacks, but when he discovered the lizard he began to lighten up and laugh. That started a long-standing joke between Sam and his family. But, more importantly, it changed Sam's attitude and the rest is history!

We all want to invite success into our lives. We all want to make our interactions with others more meaningful. So how do you do that? How can you create the best of what you want? How do you bring the lizard into your life? Sam Glenn provides the tools by using stories from his experiences at home and on the road to explain the four key principals in the Lizard Philosophy. The principles - Be Creative, Remember What's Important, Go Above And Beyond, and Have Fun, - are key to having a happier and more positive work environment and life.

Sam Glenn, creator of the Lizard Philosophy and host of the new program said, "Many people are familiar with the 'Fish Philosophy' business training programs based on the best-selling book and video 'Fish!' My 'Lizard Philosophy' explains how every person can bring their creativity, enthusiasm, and positive attitude to every interaction with customers and coworkers."

The "Who Put A Lizard In My Lasagna" training package includes the DVD of the program, a Leader's Guide, PowerPoint Presentation, reproducible materials for handout, and Sam Glenn's book, "Who Put A Lizard In The Lasagna?"

"Who Put A Lizard In My Lasagna" is part of a complete video based training series featuring Sam Glenn. The other two programs in the series are "A Kick In the Attitude" and "When Change Happens, Adjust Your Sail." This program is available from Enterprise Media and can be previewed by visiting our website at http://www.enterprisemedia.com or by calling the company at 1-800-423-6021.

Sam Glenn is a leading motivational keynote speaker. This once nighttime janitor who slept on borrowed floor space now invigorates audiences of every size and some as large as 75,000 with sidesplitting humor, inspirational insights and candid simplicity. Sam Glenn is regarded as the nation's foremost Authority on Attitude

Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) June 22, 2009

Tracy True Dismukes, owner of three Collage Designer Consignment women's clothing stores in Birmingham, Alabama and founder of the Consignment Chic television show and online community for consignment shoppers, will deliver the keynote address at the 22nd Annual Conference for the National Association of Resale and Thrift Shops (NARTS). Dismukes is the Immediate Past President of NARTS. According to Chris Cowman, President of NARTS, "Tracy's grasp of current events and leadership in the resale industry make her the best choice for keynote speaker. She is a great motivator and an industry expert."

In this struggling economy, few industries are flourishing like resale and consignment.
Consumers who have tightened their budget belts are now discovering that they can maintain the high standard of living they had become accustomed to by shopping consignment and resale. They can find high quality, in fashion, designer and better apparel, plus size clothing, accessories, designer handbags, shoes, children's clothing, furniture and home decor at prices 60% - 80% off retail every day. They can also make money by selling items on consignment that they are no longer using that are in perfect condition and in style. Dismukes said, "Where else can someone make a purchase without pulling out their wallet to pay? When selling items through a consignment shop, the consignor can purchase items with the credit accumulated from the sale of items in their account. It is a win-win solution for everyone!"

Through the keynote address, Dismukes intends to motivate the 320+ shop owners in attendance from across the United States and Canada to join together to promote consignment shopping through local, national and international efforts. According to Dismukes, "We all become larger in the eyes of the consumer when we combine our resources and work together towards our common goal - to excite and educate consumers about the thrill of shopping consignment and resale!"

Dismukes is the Host and Executive Producer of the Consignment Chic television show on the local CW affiliate and Owner of ConsignmentChic.com, a consumer-focused national website with video clips, blogs, store finder, message boards and information to educate and energize consumers about consignment shopping. This active online community for consignment shoppers is set to launch online shopping in an e-Commerce store comprised of merchandise from hundreds of consignment shops across the country in August, 2009.

Started in 1992, Collage Designer Consignment was voted Best Consignment Shop and Best Women's Boutique by readers of Birmingham Magazine and Dismukes was awarded Retailer of the Year by the Alabama Retail Association. Consignment Chic Television was created in December of 2008 when Dismukes recognized how the current economic downturn coupled with the renewed emphasis on recycling made it the perfect time to showcase the consignment and resale industry.

Help for People Who Are Sick and Tired

Buffalo, NY (Vocus) July 3, 2009

There is a growing interest in the relationship between food and health as more and more consumers reach for organic foods and foods made without chemicals, hormones and additives. Motivational speaker and specialty cookbook author Lisa A. Lundy makes available for the first time to the public a document aptly titled "Could Food Be Making You Sick and Tired?" which you can now download free from her website http://www.TheSuperAllergyCookbook.com. The document is an excellent primer addressing why there is such an explosion in the gluten-free diet, the value that the Feingold Association (http://www.Feingold.org) offers to people who want to be healthy, as well as the prevalence of celiac disease and other health conditions that are often helped by a change in diet including autism, ADD, ADHD, gastrointestinal issues, Crohn's disease, irritable bowel, behavioral, emotional and learning issues in children, allergies, depression and anxiety for starters.

Once source for people feeling sick or tired can be undiagnosed celiac disease. According to the University of Chicago's Celiac Disease Program, just over 3 million Americans have celiac disease, yet 97 percent of the people with celiac disease are undiagnosed. Celiac disease is more common than several other diseases that have become "household" words such as epilepsy, cystic fibrosis, hemophilia, Parkinson's disease, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and multiple sclerosis.

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder that can affect both children and adults. In people with an active case of celiac disease, eating gluten, an amino acid sequence found in wheat, barley, rye, some oats and other grains containing gluten, triggers the body's immune response and can damage or destroy the villi in the small intestine. While there is no cure for celiac disease, strict adherence to a gluten-free diet is the recommended treatment. Undiagnosed and untreated celiac disease increases the risk of cancer by 200-300% according to a fact sheet produced by the Celiac Sprue Association USA, Inc., a non-profit consumer organization dedicated to supporting individuals with celiac disease has a website with information and resources on the topic: http://www.CSACeliacs.org

"More and more Americans are reaching for organic foods and foods made without additives, preservatives and food dyes because consumers are realizing that food can have a big impact on how they feel. U.S. food manufacturers are reacting to consumer demand and preferences by removing additives," Lundy stated. "It is an exciting time for consumers as we now see some of the major food producers on TV promoting the fact that their food is either organic or made without hormones, antibiotics, preservatives or additives" Lundy said.

Lundy is the author of The Super Allergy Girl? Allergy & Celiac Cookbook (From A Mother Who Knows?), a gluten-free, casein-free, dairy-free, egg-free, peanut and tree-nut free and other allergen-free resource for both the beginner and experienced baker. She has more than a decade of experience with food allergies and celiac disease and has taught gluten-free baking classes in the Western New York community for many years.

Her cookbook, with more than 225 excellent recipes and over 100 pages of essential information has received extraordinary reviews from other mothers as well as from internationally known physicians like Doris J. Rapp, M.D. http://www.DrRapp.com.

Becky Witt: Offering Immediate Help for Victims of the Job Market Meltdown

Miami, FL (PRWEB) July 3, 2009

Instant relief for the headaches of job separation is no longer a major issue for the millions in need with the rollout of Becky Witt's Innovative Business Model that is around the exploding personal development industry. "Why look for a job that does not exist when I can offer a new career option that provides security and long term financial growth?" said Wiitt.

Becky Witt grew up in Northern Florida, graduated from the University of Florida and has lived outside of the USA since 1979. "I have lived in the Virgin Islands and have called Costa Rice home since 2002," said Witt, "and have a work background with various titles ranging from Lab Manager for a company that produces rum, to the role of General Manager for a company that is a subsidiary of a Fortune 250 company that specialized in producing Southern Comfort products. I had some personal challenges starting in the year 2008 that forced me to look at other options in my business world, and through analyzing the personal development industry and the worldwide rapid growth, I became fascinated on the potential and I now have in place a business model (http://www.Wealth-and-Freedom.com) that is changing lives forever and is built on a very strong Three Business Concept."

?Most companies are wasting money going after the wrong customers

Video Exposes Underlying Reasons for Health Issues

Buffalo, New York (Vocus) July 8, 2009 -

Motivational Speaker and cookbook author Lisa a. Lundy is leading the charge for outing what she calls America's top secret medical disorder - celiac disease in a new video you can view here. Celiac disease is more common than Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, cystic fibrosis, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn's disease, which are diseases that are household words in our country. Celiac disease is estimated to affect at least 1% of the U.S. population, yet currently 97% of the people with celiac disease do not yet know that they have celiac disease. Undiagnosed celiac disease increases the risk of cancer by 200-300% according to a Celiac Sprue Association Fact Sheet that you can download http://www.TheSuperAllergyCookbook.com. Undiagnosed celiac disease also increases the risk of miscarriage by 800-900%. There are over 300 signs, symptoms, complications and associated disorders associated with celiac disease including abdominal pain or bloating, acid reflux, anemia, anxiety or depression, arthritis, constipation or diarrhea, chronic fatigue, diabetes, headache or migraine, insomnia, irritable bowel, miscarriage, malnutrition, heart disease, unexplained weight gain or weight loss, dental enamel defects, infertility and cancer.

Celiac disease, the most common autoimmune disease in the world, can affect both children and adults. While there are many symptoms for celiac disease, an individual can have an active case of celiac disease without having any symptoms. Eating gluten, an amino acid sequence found in grains like wheat, barley, rye and other common grains, in a person with an active case of celiac disease will damage, flatten or eventually destroy the villi in the body's small intestine. Early diagnosis often allows the villi to grow back and restores the body to full health. The treatment for celiac disease is eating foods that are gluten-free.

The staggering numbers, over 3 million Americans with a potentially life-threatening disease, are causing some speculation as to why this is the current state of affairs. Two consumer organizations dedicated to helping people get diagnosed with celiac disease and to supporting newly diagnosed celiacs are the Celiac Sprue Association USA, Inc., http://www.CSAceliacs.org, and the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America, http://www.GLUTEN.net. You can find out about restaurants that cater to the gluten-free community by visiting http://www.GlutenFreeRestaurants.org, a program sponsored by the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America.

Lundy knows firsthand the difficulty in getting a diagnosis for celiac disease. When she was first nursing her second son, she noticed that he would cry inconsolably for hours on end if she ate a meal that was high in wheat. As he began eating table foods, it became even more obvious that wheat was just one of many foods that bothered her son. After a great amount of effort, Lundy's son was finally diagnosed with celiac disease.

When asked if the gluten-free diet is hard, Ms. Lundy laughs. "We do a gluten-free AND dairy-free, egg-free, peanut-free, tree-nut free diet every day! It is not that hard. My children are thriving. If it were not for their modified diet, I would have two hyperactive, hard to manage, challenging boys." Lundy has set up a content rich website to help people using or considering using a gluten-free and allergen-free diet.

Lundy's cookbook, "The Super Allergy Girl? Allergy & Celiac Cookbook -From A Mother Who Knows?", is a gluten-free, casein-free, dairy-free, egg-free, peanut and tree-nut free and other allergen-free resource to help people using special diets. With it's bright pink and green artistic and whimsical cover, you will realize that this is not just a me-too allergy or celiac cookbook. The first 100 pages are filled with helpful, must know information for special diets. Over 225 delicious recipes fill this highly praised book. Her book is available at http://www.TheSuperAllergyCookbook.com.


First Fully Functional Quadriplegic in History to Race Dragboat During Cowtown Dragboat Nationals weekend, July 11

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) July 8, 2009

Patrick Rummerfield, the first fully functional quadriplegic in the history of medicine, announced today that he has been invited by Extreme Beverage Company, makers of Bookoo and Fire it Up beverages, and by the organizers of the Cowtown Dragboat Nationals, to test-race a dragboat on July 11, during the racing weekend at Marine Creek Lake in Ft. Worth, Texas.

Mr. Rummerfield, who remained paralyzed from the neck down following an auto accident in 1974, was given 72 hours to live, and subsequently baffled the medical community by teaching himself to use his arms and legs again through self-determination and grueling, uncharted therapy, will test the Jetboat-style dragboat in preparation for his attempt to break the World Record for speed with an electric boat.

Patrick Rummerfield is no stranger to world records: in addition to being the world's first fully functional quadriplegic, he is the holder of the FIA World Landspeed Record with an electric car, taking his electric vehicle to over 250 mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah, in 1999. Patrick is also the holder of 33 World's Firsts.

"I have always been fascinated by fast races, as long as they are performed in safe, controlled places," commented Patrick from his St. Louis, MO home. "The Cowtown Dragboat Nationals are just that venue! I want to show the world that, with the right commitment, iron will, and desire to succeed, anything is possible. I am thankful to Extreme Beverage Co. for this exciting opportunity."

Mr. Rummerfield, who is rumored to be in talks with a car racing team for races in the NASCAR, ARCA, and ADRL circuits, will navigate the jetboat in a solo exhibition run that will take him to speeds in excess of 100 mph.

"We are honored to be able to have Patrick take one of these incredible boats for a spin!", said Ken Reedy, of Quick Water Productions, promoter of the national race, which is expected to attract over 150 racers this year. "Determination, focus, and desire to win are what dragboat racing is all about. If we can play a role in allowing Patrick to establish the world speed record with an electric boat, and inspire others to reach for the stars in the process, we will have done a good thing."

Mr. Rummerfield, whose solo run will take place in the afternoon of July 11, will use this experience to prepare himself for the upcoming attempt at breaking another world record. His primary focus, however, is to bring awareness to the importance of activity based restorative therapies and paralysis research.

About Patrick Rummerfield:
Patrick Rummerfield is the first fully functional quadriplegic in the history of medicine. Following a 1974 car accident that left him paralyzed from the neck down, Patrick entered an uncharted and grueling regimen of physical therapy and physical and psychological support. With sheer determination and an iron will, Patrick regained function to his limbs, and went on to race marathons all over the world, including the Ironman Triathlon, the Gobi Desert march, and the Antarctica marathon, and to establish the FIA World Land Speed record on an electric car, along with 33 World Firsts. Today Patrick works with the International Center for Spinal Cord Injury at Kennedy Krieger Institute and has co-founded Adventures on Wheels, a nonprofit organization developed to bring the world of adventure to those affected by spinal cord injury. Patrick is an accomplished motivational speaker. For additional information visit http://www.Rummerfield.com.

How To Save Money on Organic Foods

Buffalo, New York (Vocus) July 10, 2009

As more consumers are waking up to using food as a way to improve health, demand for organic foods is at an all time high. Consumers looking to save money on organic foods can watch a short video or download a tip sheet at http://www.thesuperallergycookbook.com for ideas on big savings offered by motivational speaker and specialty cookbook author Lisa A. Lundy. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, a government agency designated with leading the nation's environmental science, research, education and assessment efforts, there are more than 1,055 ingredients registered as pesticides, which are formulated into thousands of pesticide products available on the market. The EPA states:

"Pesticides may harm a developing child by blocking the absorption of important food nutrients necessary for normal healthy growth. Another way pesticides may cause harm is if a child's excretory system is not fully developed, the body may not fully remove pesticides. Also, there are 'critical periods' in human development when exposure to a toxin can permanently alter the way an individual's biological system operates."

Consumers looking for more resources and information on the damages pesticides cause to unborn babies, infants and children, the most vulnerable segments of the population, can find tip sheets and reports from the Environmental Working Group website. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) is a valuable non-profit organization whose mission is to use the power of public information to protect public health and the environment. The Foodnews.org website states: "Protecting our families' health from chemical exposures can start with minimizing children's exposure to pesticides. It is now well established that pesticides pose a risk to vital organ systems that continue to grow and mature from conception throughout infancy and childhood."

Historians state that pesticides have been used as far back as 5,000 years ago. The components used for pesticides back then were naturally occurring toxic chemicals such as arsenic, mercury and lead. The discovery by Paul Muller that DDT (dichlorodiphenyl-trichloroethane) was a very effective and inexpensive pesticide led to its increased use. Pesticide use has increased 50-fold since 1950. Some people refer to the 1940's and 1950's as the pesticide era. It was after Rachel Carson wrote a book called "Silent Spring" that a movement began to investigate the impact DDT and other pesticides on both human health and the environment.

Some consumers wonder if eating organic foods produce any health benefits. A study conducted by scientists at the University of Washington and published in Environmental Health Perspectives, a journal of the National Institutes of Health, did find that children fed predominantly organic produce and juice had only one-sixth the level of pesticide byproducts in their urine compared with children who ate conventionally farmed foods. While some parents will ultimately leave it up to the government to make foods safe for their families, a growing number of mothers are reaching for organic foods because they are proven to be safe. Ms. Lundy's 7-year-old daughter, Anne, requires organic foods because of a multitude of chronic and serious health issues.

Lundy's cookbook, ''The Super Allergy Girl? Allergy & Celiac Cookbook - From A Mother Who Knows?'', is a gluten-free, casein-free, dairy-free, egg-free, peanut and tree-nut free and other allergen-free resource to help people on a gluten-free, GFCF diet, or allergy-restricted diet. Her book is available at http://www.TheSuperAllergyCookbook.com . Her website is loaded with free information to help consumers have a healthy life in the area of food and special diets, notably allergen-free diets and gluten-free and dairy-free diets. Her daughter has multiple life-threatening food allergies to milk, eggs, peanuts and treenuts and her second son has celiac disease and lactose intolerance. She is passionate about helping people understand how they can use changes in their diet to resolve a wide variety of health issues and about getting the nearly 3 million Americans diagnosed with celiac disease.
